  1. Third Board Meeting 27 February 2013 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  2. Third Board Meeting • Thanks for coming! • First board meeting since festival • Recap our mission and artistic vision • Summary of 2012 festival • Feedback and lessons from 2012 • Vision and plans for 2013 • We will circulate the festival report and ask for your feedback in the coming weeks 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  3. Motivations Create tangible guidelines for programming and selection processes Form a more cohesive festival with a genuine flavor Improve educational and outreach opportunities Embrace the link between the festival and science Adhere to CERN’s core values and the spirit of its mission

  4. CinéGlobe Mission CinéGlobe aims to challenge the perceived divisions between science and the art of cinema by demonstrating that they are both essential to interpreting our world.

  5. Artistic Values • Key Artistic Values • Imagination • Exploration • Discovery • Innovation • Festival keywords • Unexpected • Challenging • Enlightening • Different • These values are common to science, art, and cinema – and especially apply to our work at CERN • We want to be a different kind of science festival…. But how?

  6. Artistic Vision Festival Theme - Infinitely (Inter)connected “Pick a flower on earth and you move the farthest star.” When famed physicist Paul Dirac made this statement, he probably never imagined how much it would apply to our modern society. Fueled by science and technology, our world has become connected at a level far greater than we ever thought possible. CinéGlobe seeks to showcase films of all genres that illustrate, probe, and challenge this nearly infinite connectedness of which we are all part – scientists and artists alike.

  7. Festival programming 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  8. Programming Strands • Short Film Competition • Doc <30 minutes • Fiction <15 minutes • Discussion/Short Programs • Feature Films • Musical/Retrospective Events • Post-Festival 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  9. Short Film Competition 7 Programs in all Grouped thematically Mix of Fiction/Doc in each program Grew naturally during the selection process 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  10. Short Film Programs Place in the universe: From time immemorial, man has wanted to understand his place in the grand scheme of things, who are we, what makes us unique, and who are the little green guys? Survival: Evolution used to be simple, if you were too slow you got eaten, can we now contemplate eternal life? Consequences: With our increasing ability to exploit the natural world, what impact has humankind had on our home? Progress?: Progress, driven by science and technology, has redefined the way in which we live our lives – is that always a good thing? Connected: Technology has revolutionized the way we communicate with and relate to one another, can you keep up? Reaching Out: Contemporary life has changed the scope and nature of our interactions with other people; we affect those around us in the most profound and unexpected ways and our relationships define who we are. Sex and death: Science and technology are constantly changing our lives, but two aspects of human existence remain constant… sex and death, you can’t live without them. 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  12. Jury • TECH STARTUP FOUNDER - Sunny Bates • Sunny works with businesses and organisations that thrive in this interconnected world. She was a founding board member of Kickstarter.com, which has revolutionized funding for creative projects, and has been instrumental in the World Science Festival, founded by famed string physicist Brian Green. • DOCUMENTARY PRODUCER - Peter Engel • A documentary producer with Zentropa Films in Denmark, Peter has worked extensively with MadsBrugger, the well known Danish journalist, to uncover stories from the inside perspective. Peter’s most recent film, The Ambassador, was the opening film at IDFA in Amsterdam, and showed at Sundance. • PHYSICIST - GianGiudice • Theoretical physicist at CERN, Gian wrote the book “A Zeptospace Odyssey” which explains for the average reader the complex physics of the LHC. He is often called upon to make complex physics understandable, and seeks to convey not just the content of the fundamental research done at CERN, but also the wonder behind it. • DIRECTOR - Marie-Eve Hildbrand • Graduate of the ECAL Cinéma School in Lausanne, Switzerland, Marie-Eve has produced both fiction and documentary shorts, as well as co-directing a documentary feature on the Swiss political process, DansNosCampagnes, which premiered at the Solothurn Film Festival in early 2012. • ANIMATION SUPERVISOR - Andrew R. Jones • Animation supervisor for films such as Titanic, Godzilla, I, Robot, and Superman Returns, Andy won both the Oscar and BAFTA awards for best visual effects on Avatar. He recently finished his first short film as writer and director, named Parallel, which will be screened out of competition at CinéGlobe. • FESTIVAL ORGANIZER - Vincent Lamy • General delegate to the PariScience science film festival in Paris, Vincent is participating in the CinéGlobe jury for the second time. He knows science film and film festivals from the inside out, and has lead an equally eclectic life as host, singer, and actor. 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  18. Film Reviewing • Online platform with dedicated server • All films viewable with metadata • Ratings system for distributed reviewing • Interface to short film depot (SFD) • Most films uploaded as SFD video files, but still accepted ~1/3 by DVD • Server no longer online • Management was largely manual and time consuming • There are security issues with hosting it at CERN • We are looking at alternatives to bring it back online 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  19. Reviewing/Selection Process • First viewing by about 20 volunteers from the film club • Very general elimination process • Any eliminated film had to be seen by two people • Pre-selection of about 300 films • Final selection made iteratively by selection committee (3 people) • Each person watched more than ~500 films 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  21. Audiovisual Setup • Provided by Lumens8 • 18k projector, Full HD • 6.5m screen • Real Cinema Experience • Globe will update its current system to more or less these specifications • Only problems during event arose from Globe system and mixing Globe/external systems 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  22. Subtitling/Interpretation • Subtitled all films in English and French • Used film club members to do the brunt of the work • Burnt in subtitles using FCP and an XML converter • We were subtitling right up until showtime in some instances (missed a couple of films for first showtime) • Interpretation • Saturday only (discussion program at Forum and Awards ceremony at Globe) • Availability was appreciated, but total cost was probably more than 100CHF/person 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  26. Audience Statistics by Screening 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  27. Audience Statistics by Day • Sunday was an important addition overall • Friday ended up a missed opportunity • Thursday, with musical event, was the day of best attendance • Forum Meyrin was very underutilized 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  28. Comparative Schedule 2010-2012 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  29. Audience Statistics 2010 vs. 2012 Missed Opportunity 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  30. Logistics Summary • Technically very pleased • Image good, sound good… • EXCEPT when mixing with Globe in-house audio system • Submissions management • Overall worked well • However, labor intensive and not automated • May require video uploads for 2014 (no more DVDs) • Subtitling/Interpretation • Subtitling cheap, but labor INTENSIVE • Interpretation effortless, but very EXPENSIVE • Need to find a way to fix both problems • Schedule worked well for us, but didn’t draw the audience we hoped… need to evaluate further • Attendance • 17% drop is disappointing • Weather probably played a role • 2010 – 4 degrees C, 18h sunset • 2012 – 19 degrees C, 20h sunset • Venues • Forum Meyrin did not work… • Do we drop it, or approach in a new way? 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  42. Publicity Reach Overall 312 responses in total to questionnaire: CERN channels by far the most influential Lots of word of mouth Publicity campaign was useful (23% reach) but not staggering Papers were the most effective outlet in the media Two most expensive outlets – TPG and Cinemas – were the least effective 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  43. Publicity Reach – CERN Channels 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board

  44. Communication Summary • Overall • Quality of publicity campaign elements was well perceived • Variety of placements and press was vastly increased from 2010 • Even inside CERN, more varied communication avenues were used compared to last festival • However, audience survey points out interesting issues • CERN channels reached more than half our audience, but did not increase attendance • Most expensive placements (cinema / TPG) reached almost no one • Press (free) was the most effective external support 3rd CinéGlobe Advisory Board
